Kurt Busch to reporter: Probation stops me from beating the s*** out of you (Video)
During Saturday’s Nationwide race at Dover, Kurt Busch may have found himself a new nemesis in young driver Justin Allgaier. According to Busch, Allgaier thought Busch hit him to start the race and was trying to get back at him for it throughout the rest of the afternoon. The two exchanged words after the race before Busch went off on a Sporting News reporter for asking him about it.
As you can see from the clip above that Eye on NASCAR shared with us, Busch was not interested in discussing the day’s events with Sporting News’ Bob Pockrass after the race.
“(Being on probation) refrains me from not beating the s*** out of you right now, because you ask me stupid questions,” Busch said. “But since I’m on probation, I suppose that’s improper to say as well. If you could talk about racing things, we could talk about racing things, Bob. You’re in this just to start stuff. That’s all you’re out here for.”
Busch had to be restrained last September after he went after NASCAR.com reporter Joe Menzer at Richmond. He also ripped up a quote that an Associated Press writer handed to him to prove that he had said something he was claiming he had never said. Another incident occurred when Busch began cursing at an ESPN reporter after he wrecked at Homestead last season. That was the final straw and cost him his spot at Penske Racing. As you can see, Kurt has a bit of a temper problem.
